The Warrandyte Festival - Friday 18 to Sunday 20 March 2016

The Warrandyte Festival

The much-loved Warrandyte Festival is a celebration of community, participation and friendship. Held on the banks of the Yarra in March each year, the Festival is an opportunity for local people, families, schools, community groups and services to come together and enjoy everything that Warrandyte offers.

The 2016 Festival will be held from 18 – 20 March 2016.

On the banks of the Yarra, festival-goers enjoy the duck race, billy cart derby, great live music and fabulous festival fare. The kids are entertained all weekend while adults enjoy the swinging sounds of vibrant bands and catching up with friends.

The Warrandyte Festival is a no smoking event across the entire Reserve, all weekend.
